Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Chardonnay (100%)
Tasting notes: Beautiful lemon yellow in colour. The first nose is floral (white spring blossoms such as narcissus, wild lily, lily of the valley) followed by scents of baked goods (candied chestnut, pear tart, vanilla) and herbal infusions (linden, lemon verbena). The palate starts off rich, and features flavours of barley sugar, candied lemon, and mandarin with a boost of herbs and spices (coriander) along with toasted hazelnut. The finish boasts a touch of minerality (flint). This wine’s full-bodied, mature profile will be further enhanced after a year or two in the cellar.
The Bourgogne Côte d’Or appellation is a new appellation beginning with the 2017 vintage. It aims to offer the nobility of Burgundy’s regional appellations by using grapes that come exclusively from the finest terroirs in the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, a philosophy the House of Edouard Delaunay fully supports.
About the winery: The Delaunay story is absolutely unique!
25 years earlier, the Delaunay family sold the family premium wine estate. A couple of years ago, Laurent Delaunay, the 5th generation of a family of winemakers and négociants, is re-appropriating his family’s history!
After a few years of intense work at the cellar by Laurent, we can tell : Delaunay is back on the very front of the scene with nicest appellations, superb juices.
The Revival of the House
The revival of the House of Edouard Delaunay began three years ago when Laurent, great grandson of the founder, bought back the winery, brand and cellar and added them to Chateau de Charmont, in the Hautes Cotes de Nuits, purchased in 2007.
His ambition has been to return it to its former glory and make Edouard Delaunay a leading Burgundian wine house once more. He has done that, and then some!
Purity and precision are the two keywords for us. My philosophy is really: listening, reading the terroir and the vines’ condition, trying to understand, and gently accompanying the natural evolution of the wine.
